Jaama strengthens management team

Jaama has strengthened its senior management team as the fleet software management company targets growth in 2015.

Michelle Morgan, who joined the business a decade ago, has been promoted to operations director, with responsibility for customer support and implementation.

Previously, she was implementation services manager and that position is now filled by the promotion of implementation manager Thomas Mansbridge.

In addition, Stuart Mills, having started work with the company when it launched 10 years ago, has been promoted to development director from development manager with responsibility for Jaama’s development team and products.

The new development manager is Jen Ahearn, who was previously deputy development manager and has been with Jaama for more than seven years.

Meanwhile, the five-strong board of directors is completed by IT director James Thresher, who has also been with the company for a decade and is responsible for strategy.

Jaama has defied the recession with continual year-on-year growth and at the end of 2014 - its 10th anniversary year - employed almost 50 people and recorded annual sales approaching £5 million.

Jason Francis, chief executive at Jaama, said: “During 2014 we employed an additional 14 people in our UK and overseas operations. The first 10 years saw the focus almost exclusively on developing our UK business with a cautious approach into international markets.

“More recently Key2 has been in growing demand from UK-based organisations with overseas operations and that development has led to us establishing international operations to further expand our worldwide customer base. I am delighted with our success so far.”

In 2015 Jaama anticipates further growth across all sectors in which it operates - public and private sector fleets, delivering systems to medium-sized contract hire, leasing and vehicle rental businesses and plant management operations.

Francis continued: “Last year saw Jaama introduce significant software enhancements across electronic driver licence checking, driver risk management and plant management and our systems will continue to develop as customers are used to Jaama providing them with advanced technology that sets the standard for our industry.

“Customers want software that moves their businesses and operations forward in a practical manner so our focus is on continued innovation to ensure they benefit from the very best software available.”

Last year, Jaama recorded a 17% increase in revenue as an ever-increasing number of organisations utilised web-enabled technology to manage their fleet and transport operations.
